The quality of the e-book is fantastic. Let me get that out of the way. It's good for anyone studying politics to read the Communist Manifesto in order to understand what is effectively the bible of a political ideology.
That said, the Communist Manifesto seems to be missing something. At the end. A "JUST KIDDING!!" disclaimer perhaps. It is, without a doubt, the DUMBEST piece of political propaganda I have ever read. It stretches from nonsensical assertions to absurd conjecture to moronic conclusions. I purchased (free) it to be able to better understand the points of view of those with whom I didn't necessarily agree with, but respected their intelligence. I no longer respect their intelligence. Every paragraph had a facepalming moment.
Engels starts out talking about the horrors of the bourgeois (effectively the middle/upper class) and the nightmare of innovation, technology, lowered costs, and higher efficiency they have created on the backs of the workers. He commits two absurd sins of reason. 1) He never even fathoms that ALL WORKERS ARE ALSO CONSUMERS, and although the industry in which someone may work in may become obsolete by technology and progress (ex: Buggy Manufacturers), society as a whole benefits. 2) Individuals are not helpless. They are not innately stupid and stuck into one class forever. A man or woman may better themselves, gain a skill/trade/education/work experience and EVOLVE their skills with technology and innovation. A buggy maker may learn to be a riveter on an auto assembly line. A bread maker, working for decades with an old-style oven, may learn to work in a large-scale bakery that is better served to cater to the consumer's desire for quality and affordability.
